If the warrant is in the NCIC database, you could be arrested and held anywhere in the US. Whether the case is civil or criminal is irrelevent. A typical scenario is you are pulled over in California for a minor traffic offense. The warrant shows up when the cop runs your name and you are arrested. A tow truck is called and your vehicle is impounded. You sit in jail for a while, it could be up to 30 days while Wisconsin decides to extradite you. It is unlikely a writ of extradition will come through so you are released and you have to pay the towing and storage for your vehicle. Rinse and repeat everytime you come in contact with a police officer. My BIL is a good example of the above. He had an unpaid speeding ticket from Chino, California. He was pulled over on Interstate 5 near Olympia, Washington for a burned out tail light. He sat in the Lewis County jail for 14 days before California decided not to extradite. It then cost him over $400 to get his car back. It all depends, do you feel lucky?
If you feel my answer is rude, mean, snarky or in anyway not to your liking, I did my job. You don't need to tell me.
